Potatoes are easy and satisfying to grow, yielding a good harvest of eagerly awaited tubers below ground. An enormous selection of varieties is available to the gardener to choose from. These vary considerably in shape, size, colour, cooking and eating qualities, as well as resistance to common potato pests and diseases. It is worth trying a range of types to see which best suits your soil, and your tastes. Whatever you choose, grow them organically - and they'll taste even better.
